Jose Mourinho was on a scouting mission in Podgorica last night as Serbia beat Montenegro 2-0 in the Nations League.
Fulham’s Aleksandr Mitrovic scored twice for Montenegro, but Mourinho, who tried to keep a low profile with a baseball cap low over his face, was there to watch a couple of Serbia stars.
The Sun claim he was mainly there to watch imposing Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who only featured for the last 11 minutes.
The midfielder did though claim an assist, with a neat dummy in the box which allowed Mitrovic to score his second goal.
“Mourinho seemed to appreciate the move,” according to The Sun, as he sat alongside former Real Madrid star Predrag Mijatovic.
Reuters though claim Mourinho was in the VIP box to scout Serbia’s 20-year-old centre-back Nikola Milenkovic. After enjoying a fine World Cup Milenkovic, who played the full 90 minutes, has enjoyed a good start to the season with Fiorentina and has been mentioned as a target for Tottenham.
Mourinho is still looking for a centre-back after failing to add one to his squad in the summer.
Matic, 30, will miss Serbia’s other date with Romania due to an unspecified injury and he is a doubt to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on October 20.
